New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The Broken Islands are a Vancouver, Canada based sextet who meld elements of ambient pop, shoegaze, post-rock, post-punk, trip-hop and dark wave to create their own distinct sound. With crashing guitars and delicate sounding keyboards weaving around swooning, siren-like vocals, the band's songs can sound at times like an otherworldly sonic experience while still being packed with emotion and moments of tenderness.

The well-received debut album entitled 'Wars' was released in the autumn of 2017, with a follow up, 'Masquerade', due out in January 2020. An opening salvo from the new record was released in May 2019 in the form of the cinematic sounding 'Solid State', which was issued to coincide with five UK shows.

A second single 'High Life' was released in September 2019 in advance of a November UK tour including a three-night artist residency at the storied London Troubadour. Like its predecessor, 'Masquerade' has been produced and mixed by Dave 'Rave' Ogilvie, who is best known for his work with industrial music titans such as Nine Inch Nails, Ministry and Skinny Puppy and was the perfect choice to harness the many influences that constitute the sound of The Broken Islands. Band co-founder Stephen Cameron points out that:

"we are all multi-instrumentalists and one of the great things about being in a six-piece band is the ability to switch instruments and play different things on different songs to really makes things exciting. We love to add percussion to songs so a set of free hands usually gets a chance to pick something up and add a new sound to a track. We all have wildly varied musical references, which we believe is what makes The Broken Islands sound the way it does. It's really great to gain insight into someone else's perspective of a song that you might not have heard before."
